> > i just started taking remeron, but i'm having trouble with the sedative effect of the drug. will this improve or should i try something else?
> Sedation does improve, but not for a few weeks. Even then, you may feel rather sluggish and hungover when you wake up, goes away by the time you're done with first cup of coffee. Strange, but the higher the dose, the less sedation. At least in theory. I went as high as 60mg. Sedation was only a problem in late afternoon, early evening. Mornings and early afternoon were great. I tell you what though, you will have the best sleep of your life. Enjoy it, as that is not characteristic of so many of the other drugs. I eventually quit because it just didn't seem to help me much, but I sure miss that awesome sleep and go-get-em-tiger mornings. Condsider adding on Wellbutrin, perhaps around lunch time, for an extra pick-me-up, and to counter any weight gain, if that is a concern. That worked good, except Wellbutrin gave me a horrendous ringing in the ear. jamie

thanks jamie. my dr. told me to lower the dose so now i don't know what to do.
